We could probably have another thread on brewery tours - my favorite to date is the Boston Brewery (Sam Adams). Basically 20 minutes of cheerleading for beer and its ingredients, the folks working in the brewery are the ones you see in their commercials, and the tour guide is drinking the whole time he's walking you around. At the end you're seated at long tables for "samples" (7 oz tasting glass) of four of their brews...multiple pitchers of each are passed up and down the tables, and the hosts get pissed if a not-empty pitcher makes it back up to the front end of your table. I made the mistake of hitting that place for a noon tour prior to eating lunch...made for an interesting afternoon...By the way, if you ever find yourself in Reykjavik, I highly recommend taking a tour of the Ölgerðin Egill Skallagrímsson brewery on a Friday night. It's not like the tours of American macrobreweries where you get a free sample of some light lager at the end. It's a history lesson of alcohol in Iceland, that you drink your way through. Afterwards, the tour bus dumps you off on Laugavegur (Laundry Street in English), Reykjavik's main street, where you'll probably spend the rest of the night on an Icelandic-style runtur (bar crawl). Done right, a runtur is something you'll both not remember and never forget.
